Review

"I wish this book had been available when I took the pharmacology/prescribing course...This handy, pocket-size book is well laid out and the terminology and language are clearly explained...It is suitable for novice and qualified independent nurse prescibers working in the community or hospital setting." Nursing Standard, 30 June 2010

5.0 out of 5 stars all you need in one little book. 11 Dec 2009
By Mark
Format:Paperback
Everything you need in such a little book! Good for studying for a degree or work.
Well recommended. I have other drug books some double the size and more than double the price but since buying this one it is all I use, just wish I bought this one before I wasted my money on the others. 10/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars A non-nursing view 28 Aug 2011
By KieranB
Format:Paperback
As an allied healthcare professional (Paramedic) I found this book to be an excellent introductory guide to most areas of pharmacology. I found the text to be well structured, well written and easy to understand, without being too bogged down in specifics. I will continue to keep the book handy and use the text as a reference guide. I have recommended the book to several collagues and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone within prehospital care.

This is an excellent pharmacology book, which is so much cheaper than all the other, and still contains everything you need to know. The pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of every drug classification are well explained and easy to understand with diagrams and explanations. This book is NOT just for nurses, but all health care professional who have responsibilities for the administration of drugs!

Wow, what a book.
Contains a lot of detail and is great to be carried around in my bag all day without adding to the bulk.
I also used it to reference in a few essays.
